Located just across the street from the Lake in Dollar Point, this large spacious home provides a comfortable getaway for groups and family gatherings. Enjoy the view of Lake Tahoe on the large balcony deck located at the front of the house.

This comfortable home has four bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master bedroom and master bath are located downstairs along with the great room, dining area, kitchen & laundry room. The dining table easily seats 8, and there is additional seating at the kitchen counter bar. Upstairs you will find a loft area, 1 bedroom with king bed, 1 bedroom with twin beds, and 1 bedroom with two sets of bunk beds.

There are two attached separate entranced apartments each with a full bathroom. The back unit has a queen bed. The lower front unit has twin beds.

Excellent house.

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out great for our group of 14. I was concerned beforehand that the common areas might not be large enough to handle a group that big, especially the kitchen, but it was no problem. I was pleased to discover that there were two separate refrigerators to handle all the food. For dining, we used the table plus the chairs at the counter. The house was very clean and in good repair. I appreciated that the kitchen was very well organized, and stocked with everything you'll need in the way of cooking tools, plates, glassware, mugs, etc.. The bunk room upstairs is small, so maybe best for children, although we had teens in there.

A Real Gem in Dollar Point

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay at in Lake Tahoe. Very convenient to Tahoe City, Kings Beach, the Lake itself and amenities of the community association.

Also the house itself is great for large family gatherings... We celebrated my mom's 65th birthday here and it was perfect. My sister and I with a total of 4 young kids stayed upstairs where there are three bedrooms (one is a perfect kids room with bunkbeds) and a big bathroom, while my other sister stayed in one of the attached but private suites. This allowed her and her partner to be able to get away from the noise of 4 kids very easily. There was another, similar unit that we didn't use, but which next time would be perfect for my brother & his wife for the same reason - privacy!

My mom stayed in the bedroom on the main floor - which she loved b/c she was in the action with the grandkids in the open concept kitchen / living / dining room (with huge family size dining table) that opened up onto the BIG, BEAUTIFUL deck which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

Owners were friendly, communicative and accessible and have the house stocked with everything a person could need.

House was clean and ready for us upon arrival. Instructions for departure were straightforward.

Added bonus - great "bear" theme throughout (although my 20 month old niece was very suspicious of the 5' tall bear by the fireplace)!

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for helping us give my mom her "best birthday, ever!"

Lewis Family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week with family in this home. Two words, best describe it - comfortable and convenient. Since we had six children under the age of 8, the convenience of walking to the lake was very important. The private beach was not crowded and we appreciated the chairs, umbrellas, restrooms, and picnic area available to us. The kids loved exploring among the rocks and fishing for crawdads off the pier. The home itself was well-stocked with everything we needed. The large deck was a favorite for meal times and the living area was large enough for us all to gather in the evening. A grocery store is conveniently located nearby. We enjoyed walking through Tahoe City and making the short drive to Squaw Valley. The property managers are easy to work with. We will definitely keep this property in mind for a future visit.

Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect choice for our week long family reunion and vacation! The location was great, right across the street from the lake and just a 5-minute walk to the private beach/pier of Dollar Point (Tahoe City). The home comes with access to Dollar Point amenities such as the private beach, pool, tennis courts, etc. The home is perfect for multi-families with a large 4 bedroom house (including a room with 4 bunk beds - perfect for kids!) and 2 additional "apartments" (bedroom/bathroom) with separate entrances for those who want extra privacy. The house is well stocked with plenty of kitchen supplies and even a bedrail for the top bunk. The deck is huge and includes lake views!

The property management of this rental gives A+ service. In a family emergency, they were so gracious and worked with us to make our trip perfect. We really enjoyed all aspects of this house and plan to return in the future!

Great Place for large families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over New Years and had a great time. The home was in excellent condition. There was lots of room for our large group to spread out, and the large living/dining area let us all hang out together without being cramped. The location is great, with excellent lake views, access to the beach, and a short trip to North Star, Squaw, and Alpine. Would definitely go back.

Outstanding rental near Tahoe City!

  • 5 of 5

This home far exceeded our expectations! It was incredibly clean, well-maintained, and spacious; the kitchen was very well stocked. The living room was huge, and the loft gave the home a big, open feel. The fireplace was wonderful on a cold winter night.

We loved the separate entry aspect of two of the bed/bath areas - there were several of us families with young children, and my in-laws had their own quieter space to go back to at the end of the night. It would also be great for families and singles staying together - the singles could be separate from noisy little ones!

The home was close to Northstar, Squaw, and Alpine, and downtown Tahoe City was just a few minutes away. It was a 2-3 minute walk down to the private beach area, which was so lovely, especially at sunset.

Diana, the owner, was incredibly responsive and helpful. We absolutely would love to stay here again - maybe in the summer, to maximize access to the pool and tennis! I would recommend this home to anyone!
